Vice President - Cordelia Henderson
I am a freshman music major who grew up in the military, so I moved all over the US, but my homes are in Huntsville and Hawaii. I was a competitive swimmer for 11 years and I’ve been playing piano for 10 years. I love free-diving, hiking, and playing games with my family. My faith has always been a big part of my life, and I love being able to share it with others
Secretary - Kevin Santschi
Kevin is a junior from Harrisburg, NC, studying Computer Science and Mathematics with a concentration in Game Design. He enjoys writing music, gaming with friends, board games, and making people laugh. Although a new officer, he is excited to help others grow into the CCM community and in their spiritual lives.
Treasurer - Paul Custodio
Paul is a sophomore originally from Virginia, who has lived in Huntsville for 11 years. He was a CS major, although he realized he didn't enjoy it and is leaning towards becoming a Mechanical Engineer. He enjoys making the worst jokes you have ever heard, and also enjoys competition in both board games and sports. He is looking forward to offering his talents to CCM and helping it grow.
FOCUS Digital Outreach
We are entering our 2nd year with FOCUS Digital Outreach at UAHCCM. FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students) invites college students to grow in relationship with Jesus and His Church; inspiring and equipping them for a lifetime of Christ-centered evangelization, discipleship and friendships in which they lead others to do the same.
Meet our Missionaries:
Anthony Sloan, Team Lead
Anthony was born in Michigan, but has since called six other states home, and currently resides in South Carolina with his wife and four daughters (ages 6, 4, 2 and newborn). After graduating college at the University of Michigan, he eventually attended a Master’s program at the University of Denver in Colorado. Shortly thereafter, he became a Catholic elementary school teacher. He met his wife while teaching, and together they discerned a missionary way of life and joined FOCUS in 2016. Since becoming missionaries, Anthony and his wife, Amanda, have served for five years on campuses in the Pacific Northwest and are eager now to explore all that the South has to offer!
Jocelyn is a sanguine phlegmatic Texan to the core which means she would love to go get some queso and a margarita with you the next time she’s in town or really, anything goes. This is her 9th year with FOCUS and after serving on campus, internationally, and as a hospital missionary she currently serves the digital sphere from Lawrence, KS with her husband and two little girls.
